In 2005, SNS co-founders Erik and Peter visited the New Balance factory in Flimby, UK, to design their first collaboration, a New Balance 577. Time was limited during their trip, they say, and that first collaboration was gestated in just 10 minutes.
To relive the moment and celebrate 40 years of New Balance footwear manufacturing in Flimby, SNS is bringing back the two colorways of its first model, this time on the 991. Made with premium leather and suede overlays. pigskin, with yellow, blue, and white on Erik’s design and dark navy, white, and gray on Peter’s. Both mounted on the usual ABZORB midsole.
In honor of the seaside town’s rich history of offering more than just making New Balance sneakers, SNS highlights the things we can do there, in 10 minutes! : visiting family members, searching for treasures on the beach, fishing, sightseeing, feeding the local animals or having a snack
The SNS x New Balance 911 “Made in UK” will be released February 26, on the SNS website and stores.
